How to Use a Tea Infuser to Make an Herb Sachet

Soups, stocks and sauces can really benefit from fresh herbs, but you may not always have cheesecloth on hand. Here's a quick tip to use a tea infuser (also called tea ball) to make an herb sachet.


No cheesecloth? No problem! Buy a tea infuser to keep on hand. Aside from making great tea, you can use the tea ball to hold fresh and dried herbs, bay leaves, garlic, peppercorns, or whatever else you use for flavoring. Submerge it in your soup or stock and then simply pull it out when your dish is done. Wash it when finished and use it again and again.
